President Barack Obama will attend a memorial service for victims of the mass shooting at the Washington Navy Yard, the White House announced on Wednesday. Press secretary Jay Carney said that the service would take place on Sunday and said the White House would provide more details. “The president will want to mourn the loss of these innocent victims and share in the nation’s pain in the aftermath of another senseless mass shooting,” he told reporters. Aaron Alexis, 34, opened fire at the Navy Yard on Monday, murdering 12 people before being killed by police.
